On the Cultural Experience & Dog Sledding tour, you will experience peace while riding the dog sled (for 7 days) and maybe even become one with nature. You will meet plenty of warm, welcoming and kind local people, eat authentic Greenlandic food at a family’s home, see different settlements, and learn about their culture and history.
We recommend this tour if you want to explore Greenland in a different, unique way.
